You're going to need to explain what you mean by "shakes", but I'm going to venture out and say no, that's not normal. Is the computer on a wobbly table?

It's usually in my lap. When I am typing I can see the screen go back and forth but the hinge stays in place.

The fact that it is only a week old allows you to take it back for an exchange... no questions asked. The screen should not shake. Does it shake if you type with it sitting on a table?

What do you mean by that? When opening/closing the laptop it seems fine. It's just when I am typing that I see it wobble a little bit.
I mean if you hold your screen from the top/side and add a little force while it's in the normal open position, does it move very loosely? If not then this seems like a non-issue, and completely dependent on how you position yourself & your macbook.

Thanks it seems fine when I hold the top/side and apply a little force. I just put the screen on a flat and stable table and seems to be doing a lot better. I guess the issue is with me using the computer on an unstable surface.
